She Wore Blue Velvet - outfit post

... whoa... whoa..... Bluer than velvet were her eyes....

No they weren't. My eyes are hazel.

 Anyway.... now -  I shall be honest. Although this is vintage and only cost me £11.57 on eBay -  I am not sure it is actually "me", that it suits me or looks nice? It is a more peacock blue than this pic would suggest. Its is a 70's M&S velvet dress, that is very roomy and comfortable. And, more importantly for the inbetweeny Spring weather we are headed for, warm. I don't own many dresses with long sleeves, so this amount of warmth from one garment was a revelation to me.  


I decided to team it with red accessories, thus creating a very patriotic red, white and blue theme. The white is from my hideous bare legs. This is on account of me ripping an un-ignorable hole in the calf of my tights. And laziness when it came to taking a photo when I got in from work. It does do all the way up to the neck -  but I felt like I was being garroted. Not nice. Unless you like that sort of thing.

So -  what do we think? I am not convinced. The Beard is -  but he is biased.

Comments if you will......

  5. Oh I do like a nice bit of velvet- I think you look simply grand! Love your shoes too…. You did make me chuckle about the red, white and blue- I’m just the same- a pasty little miss- that’s why I love wearing my white skirt because it makes me look a little healthier in hue! TTFN Tups xxx
